Synopsis

Henry Gray's Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical, to give it it's full title, has been the definitive professional guide of the human body for medical practitioners, students and laypeople alike since its first publication in 1858.

Gray's Anatomy is a phenomenally well-known title and with good reason; it is a scientific and artistic triumph. Not just a dry index of parts and names, Gray's lets the natural beauty and grace of the body's interconnected systems and structures shine forth from the page.

Using sumptuous illustrations and clear, matter-of-fact descriptions, Dr. Gray unleashed a classic on the world more than 100 years ago. Its clarity and usefulness keep it in print today. Whether you want to understand yourself or others, knowledge of our physical parts and how they fit together is essential. Gray's Anatomy provides that information in a simple, timeless format that cleanly dissects a body of knowledge grown over centuries.

It features wonderful line illustrations by H. V. Carter.
